A king stops at nothing to satisfy his sexual appetites, throwing the known world into bloody chaos. Handel’s timeless masterpiece of musical drama, featuring the hits ‘Cara Sposa’ and ‘Ombra Cara’, is a thrilling tale of power, sexism and corruption.

Northern Ireland Opera, in association with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, present the Irish première and all-Ireland tour of Handel’s Radamisto.

Acclaimed Irish theatre director Wayne Jordan makes his opera debut with award winning Northern Irish designer Annemarie Woods, leading Irish conductor David Brophy, the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and some of the best of Irish female vocal talent, including Derry mezzo-soprano and local favourite Doreen Curran in the title role, Belfast-born international soprano Aoife Miskelly and sopranos Kate Allen and Sinéad Campbell-Wallace.

Sung in English.

Generously supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
